Which Grocery Store Aisle Is Almond Paste In?
Most of the time, you'll find almond paste in the baking aisle of the grocery store. It'll probably be on the shelves with sweet ingredients like chocolate chips.
You could also see almond paste in the bakery area, but this wouldn't be a typical place for it. If it's there, it might be in a promotional display case.

Great Ways to Use Almond Paste
Make German Marzipan Balls
Hands down, this is the easiest dessert you can make with almond paste. If you want to go for something a little more decadent, you could melt a bar of vegan chocolate and roll the marzipan pieces in it. When the chocolate dries, you'll have delicious marzipan truffles.
Use It in Vegan Almond Croissants
Whether you're using vegan puff pastry or venturing into the land of homemade vegan croissant dough, spread some almond paste in the middle before baking. Your croissants will be just like the ones in the bakeries. This video shows you how to make the almond filling (just be sure to use vegan margarine), but any marzipan paste you buy will work perfectly.
Make Marzipan Animals
This is a super fun activity for kids and adults. All you need is the marzipan and a little inspiration. You can make anything you want—use your imagination! Add natural vegan food dyes to make your marzipan creations really vibrant.
